Belgian broadband growth accelerates, Voo sale main focus for 2021

Tuesday 5 January 2021 | 08:00 CET | News
Growth on the Belgian broadband market is accelerating, helped by the roll-out of new fibre services and increased internet take-up during the coronavirus pandemic, research by Telecompaper shows. While Orange continues to gain the most new subscribers, its growth is slowing and it remains much smaller than market leaders Proximus and Telenet. The focus in 2021 will be on who wins the long-running battle to acquire the fourth-largest operator Voo.
